Greetings all!
I have a Min Air 1005 gasser with the original G23 engine and I have been toying with the idea of converting it to e-power. I haven't flown it in a couple years and it's just sitting on my hobby table. I know the engine needs work but I am not that into it anymore.

I have almost -0- experience with e-power with exception of small cheap helis like Honey Bee King 2, etc and I am completely clueless as to what motor/battery/esc combo to look at, along with actually trying to mount the motor and make it work with existing electronics.

Has anyone here done something like this? I saw one other thread about the possibilities of converting a 1005 but there were no replies...

Am I just being silly?

I say do it! You'll end up liking that heli again Give us your gear ratio and what your target headspeed is and we can come up with a good combo for you. As far as converting the heli, I don't have one handy, but I'm sure it can't be that hard...

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

As far as target headspeed, I am not looking for 3D - just mild sport flying, so I don't know what the headspeed should be - 1500? Gears are stock for 1005: 95T on main gear and I think 13 or so on pinion (not at home right now)...

Get your head speed up around 1800-1950. A good normal mode head speed for general putzing around would be 1650.

Even 1850 rpm in a stunt mode is not out of the question.

If you are going electric, it would be a good time to check out FBL.

Going electric was something that was talked about today while I was out today, flying with my buddy. He has a Predator gasser.
